During this week of formal thanksgiving I encourage you to also remember the millions of Muslims who are currently participating in Islam's holy pilgrimage known as the Hajj. This link provides excellent information regarding this years Hajj, including first-person reports from Mecca, multimedia explanations of different types of pilgrimage, and audio explanations of rituals such as circumambulation and stoning Satan.

For more general information on Islam I have provided a new link in the lower left-hand column, under "Sites I Recommend," titled Islam Online, and in the spirit of my recent post regarding "virtual worship" I encourage you to link to the following video clip on making a virtual Hajj.
